[Icecast] Question about Icecast2 when not streaming

Hmm. Even with the file in the right place, Icecast still doesn't use
it when my stream is offline. I can access the file using it's URL, so
I know Icecast has access to it. This is what I have in my
configuration file.

    <mount>
        <mount-name>/stream.mp3</mount-name>
        <fallback-mount>/StreamWarning.mp3</fallback-mount>
        <fallback-override>1</fallback-override>
    <public>0</public>
    </mount>

    <mount>
    <mount-name>/StreamWarning.mp3</mount-name>
</mount>

I have StreamWarning.mp3 in webroot, and I can access it using the
URL. Does anyone have any other ideas as to what might be causing the
problem?
